Casper Skulls Announce New Album, Share New Song ‘Thesis’

    Toronto-based band Casper Skulls have announced a new album, Know No Kindness. Their second LP following 2017’s Mercy Works, it arrives November 12 on Next Door Records. Lead single ‘Thesis’ is out now via a video directed by vocalist/guitarist Melanie St-Pierre alongside Paul Los and Nora Burns, with animation by Gaia Alari. Check it out below.

    “In high school, I used to write really chaotic essays for my classes,” St-Pierre explained in a press release. “I didn’t really follow the structure well because I had too many thoughts about whatever topic was handed to us. The only teacher that got a kick out of this was one of my English teachers, Mr. Dodds. One time he jokingly asked if he was going to receive the abridged thesis. That always stayed with me.”

    She added: “Finally, I found myself feeling much more suited to poetry and creative paragraph writing when I was 18, which ultimately bred my songwriting. My introduction into this world was an accidental reading of a Robert Frost poem about seven years earlier. A recurring theme I latched onto was his depictions of a rural winter. I grew up in similar surroundings which really inspires a lot of my creative work, and for that reason, I thrive artistically in the winter. I owe a lot to Mr. Dodds for allowing me to do my thing and find my own creative voice. This song is dedicated to the structurally incapable but artistically driven, and is the album’s abridged thesis.”
